My wife and I just returned from a wonderful stay at L'Esplanade. We stayed in a deluxe loft. The room was spacious, immaculately clean, extremely well appointed and the amenities were all top notch. The location of L'Esplanade was perfect, we were able to walk directly to Grand Case for meals - highly recommned La Villa - and to go...

Just spent a week with my husband and adult children at L'Esplanade and it was perfect! The hotel rooms are spacious, finely appointed and comfortable. Each room has a mini kitchen set up which enables you to enjoy breakfast in your room or to set up a relaxing cocktail hour. You may opt to cook a meal but that's not...

This beautiful hotel is in a pristine location on the French Side of island. The rooms are all gorgeous and have a great view of the ocean. The hotel is easily in walking distance of all the great restaurants in Grand Case. It is a quick drive to the Dutch side or to go to the famous Orient Beach. Do...

Being hoteliers in St. Marteen we decided to go to the other side of the island to experience a night on the French side for my wife's birthday at arguably the best hotel on the island. We chose L'Esplanade because most people say it is the best and after our brief stay I would have to agree. Again, because we...

The hotel was paradise!! The staff was so accommodating, amazing and so friendly!! The place is beautiful with a spectacular view! The rooms are fabulous. It is very close to the beach and a row of many fabulous restaurants. You can walk down to all the action but also feel totally secluded up at the hotel if you want to...

If you are looking for a beautiful slightly private yet perfectly placed hotel in St. Martin then this is it. L'esplanade is just a few steps away from the beautiful beach and restaurants of Grand Case. It is private, quiet and exceptionally well appointed. I've been all of the Caribbean and can be something of a hotel snob. This hotel...

Beyond! The lobby views alone were worth the plane ride! Not a detail was forgotten! Fabulous room, the owners took lots of care in adding some great touches. Modern kitchen, and fantastic shower! Even the toiletries were not an after thought. There is a lovely breakfast service offered, and one should take full advantage of those croissants & fresh squeezed...

We went for a ladies long weekend and it was fantastic. From the moment we arrived everything was subtly, thoughtfully and elegantly arranged for us. The location is a short walk to amazing food and beaches. The rooms are great, the pool is perfect- we did yoga, drank rum drinks and relaxed. All I can say is great views, great...

This hotel was absolutely fabulous. I have traveled to smaller, boutiques all over the world (Thailand, Caribbean, Australia, etc.) and L'Esplande was definitely at the top of the list. Beautiful views, amenities, immaculate rooms, staff and owners were awesome. The location to restaurants, beach and attractions made it easy to go out to the beach, shop or dinner but honestly...
